is just a continuation of president george w. bush in the foreign policy realm where the president, this president is just continuing the hawkish policies of the bush administration. and then the next minute, they're claiming that the president is weak in foreign policy showing weakness to our enemies and yet, completely forgetting about all the drone strikes that the president is doing, and the other thing about what jim demint is doing which i find rather callous is would he rather the president of the united states not close the embassies and make our -- and make american personnel targets for a terrorist attack? i wonder what they would be saying if the president followed through on the advice that they're giving him. >> you mean another benghazi. >> yeah, exactly. >> benghazi, benghazi. right on cue, rick santorum not a foreign policy expert accused the president of being timid. i love the personifications, timid. muscular foreign policy. they turn on to some school yard kind of event. let's watch. >> i think it's really a consequence of the policies of this administration. i

was hit harder than at any time since pearl harbor. but without blaming george w. bush for failing to act sufficiently to that warning an of august 6th, 2001, should anyone blame this president and his people for acting in time this time? joining me tonight from cairo, nbc news chief foreign correspondent richard engel and with us from new york, msnbc terrorist analyst governor coleman. nbc is reporting now the interrogation behind the worldwide terrorist alert this week was an intercepted communication between the leader an of al qaeda in the arabian peninsula and the leader of al qaeda central over in pakistan. the man who succeeded osama bin laden zawahiri. the two men reportedly agreed that they wanted to do something big. timed to the end of the muslim holy month of ramadan which is right now. and that's what led the united states to close 19 embassies. there they are on the map and consulates in the mideast and africa. there's still a lot that remains unknown including which target. over the weekend, one thing clear from every lawmaker and official with knowledge of the attack, nobo
perfect match at kp.org and thrive. >>> tonight former president george w. bush is said to be recouping well after having a stint. president clinton who had the same procedure in 2010 reached out to mr. bush today. doctors found the block cage yesterday during the annual physical. president bush is known as a fitness buff and worked out regularly two his two terms in office. dr. sanjay gupta joins me now. what do we know? >> he's 67 years old and we're told it happened on a routine physical exam. they gave no indication there was problems ahead of time and that's an important point, which we'll talk about. something during the exam related them, some cause for concern and that led to the placement of this stint. i think we have an animation to show what that is, basically. essentially you're trying to unblock an artery and put a catheter up into the artery and unblock it with a balloon but ultimately put this stint in place, a metal scaffolding. sometimes the stints will release medication, as well, to keep the blood vessel open. >> i seen studies, i think, that these are kind of -- pe
military force to respond to syria's alleged chemical weapons use, it would be an echo of what george w. bush did ten years ago when our government said it was sure, but it was wrong, and the resulting war without u.n. approval was one of america's greatest foreign policy mistakes ever, if not the greatest foreign policy mistake ever. so now here we are. the drum beat in washington today says that there is going to be an american or an american and allied military hit of some kind against sere wra. what will that do? what choices does president obama have in terms of how to respond if we does want to respond militarily or otherwise? does congress get a say in the matter? and what happens if we are wrong about this? our government's track record on being wrong about chemical weapons is long. it spans multiple administrations for multiple reasons. if the use of chemical weapons really is going to be a real redline in the world that demands a response when it happens, why is the world waiting for our government to make up our government's own mind about whether this happened? instead of wa
news minute. president george w. bush in high spirits today following a medical procedure. the 43rd president of the united states had a stint inserted to clear a blocked artery. the blockage was discovered yesterday during the 67-year-old former president's annual physical. concerns are raised again about the crippled fukushima plant in japan. the nuclear watchdog says the operator of the plant is trying to con tape highly radio active water seeping into the ocean creating an emergency situation. the plant suffered a nuclear meltdown following the 2009 quick and tsunami. finally, we know drinking and driving is dangerous, but how about drinking and walking? that's not so safe either according to new data on related fatalities. a third of the u.s. pedestrians killed in 2011 had blood alcohol levels above the legal limit for driving. those are the news headlines in the fox business network. get you back now to dagen. dagen: you can be sober in new york city and fall into a pothole. >> true, you can. dagen: not speaking from personal experience, but great to see you. >> bye-bye. dagen

partners. even with george h.w. bush, gorbachev presided over the cold war and reunion if reunif. even clinton and boris yeltsin. they had a personal relationship. friendly. marked anker wrath. personal relationship between the two leaders are critical to the success for both countries. >> would you say that the common thread is that all of the u.s. presidents in the past did actually talk or speak with the russian president? is that a difference now? >> yeah. i think it's what we would call a table stake. there has to actually be a relationship in cooperation to talking. u.s. presidents nixon and reagan, hardliners and even george h.w. bush was more cooperative. they need to reach out and have relationships. and form a personal bond and even reagan did that. reagan was as tough as they come. they knew it was important to cooperation. so i think we need to see a little bit more of that from president obama. >> all right. nic ragoone. you are a presidential historian always good to talk to you. >> thanks, aly. >> alisyn: defying the top cop in their state in giving teachers guns. is tha
policy or as tucker was saying us they hate us, they always have. it's not because of george bush. it's not because of our policy. it's because they are homicidal maniacs. they want to kill children. >> tucker: personal style. they thought bush was dumb. that's why they attacked us. it was so false from day one. >> alisyn: meanwhile, we do have other news to get to. here are your headlines. we have brand new information on that multi-state. >> salad was served in olive garden and red lobster restaurant. health officials are still trying to determine if the salad mix is responsible for the outbreak in the other 14 states. and it could be his last home run for a very long time. alex rodriguez smacking a homer during a rehab game last night in new jersey. reports until he has enemy tomorrow to announce a deal with major league suspension on doping and connections to doping clinic. mlb is considering a lifetime ban if a rod doesn't cop a deal. he sure sounds like someone expecting to place next week. >> are you confident that you are going to be in chicago? >> yeah. yep. unless i get hit

homeland security adviser to president george w. bush. she currently serves on the cia's external advisory board as well. we're talking about intercepting some sort of communication between the al qaeda leader and someone else, what does that mean? >> it's unlikely he would have sent an e-mail himself because that would have invited drone strike. it's more likely he'll use the technique that bin laden did, give a note to a courier on a thumb drive who would send it to yemen. >> fran, you're an expert on this subject. a sensitive subject. now that he and his top aides now the u.s. intercepted this communication between the al qaeda leader and someone else presumably al qaeda and the arabian peninsula, they suspect the u.s. has this capability and they're going to try to change their communications so this will undermine what the u.s. had, right? >> wolf, that's exactly right. which explains why u.s. government officials initially asked media outlets to please not report that it was a communication between them. those two individuals understand precisely how they communicated, whether it was
happened to george w. bush. i would argue that he overreacted in some ways in terms of completely changing the strategic vision trying to remake the middle east, invading iraq and, you know, stuff like that. you could argue that perhaps the obama administration has under reacted to changes that have happened in the sense of not -- certainly not enunciating whether or not they developed it and overarching strat by for the middle east during and after the arab spring. >> tomorrow on "morning joe," new york police chief ray kelly will be here. >> great. >> also she hosted president obama at her home recently, former host of npr's all things considered, michele norris joins us. >> you did that. >> yeah. >> this weekend. >> he was there this weekend? coming this weekend. going to watch football. >> that's fun. >> he's going to love your apartment. >> little tight, mr. president. >> get together and do the interview. >> lot of toys. >> david letterman reacts to miley's vma performance. news you can't use is next. i'm tony siragusa and i'm training guys who leak a little, to guard their manhood w
passed fewer executive orders at this point in his presidenciy than did george w. bush or bill clinton. people are always annoyed when presidents act with executive orders. aren't they? but presidents do it. it is their prerogative. and that's what his predecessors did even more than he did. >> it's not the number. >> you did when you were president. >> did i executive orders when i was governor. i never bypassed the law. i didn't do things that i knew i could not do under the constitution of my state. what i think is different is not how many it's what they do. executive order that says we are going to order federal employees to, you know, to work through their lunch hour for six months. okay, that's not a constitutional issue. a federal executive order where the president says we're going to let people come into the country even though though don't have documentation and even though the law doesn't permit it, that's a violation. >> alisyn: the dream act doesn't say that what he did with the dream act kids brought here through no fault of their own. >> i agree with the dream act's goa
